Design Hotels Launches New Pop Up Hotel in Mexico

Fans of “glamping”, or glamorous camping, can now enjoy the recently opened Papaya Playa Project in Tulum, Mexico. Design Hotels launched this temporary “pop up” camp, with its 99 rustic cabanas, and prices range from $25 for a cot on the beach to $675 a night for more deluxe accommodations. The rooms vary from private cabanas and casitas to shared, dormitory-style accommodations with bunk beds and shared baths.

It is one of the first large-scale hotel pop ups, with other hotels offering limited time “glamping” experiences, such as the British company, The Pop Up Hotel, and its temporary spaces for events and retreats. Travelers who are looking for a true “glamping” trip will enjoy the combination of the local environment with deluxe details, such as high thread count sheets, private cabanas, a spa that incorporates Mayan shamanism and food from KaterHolzig of Berlin’s Bar 25.

Claus Sendlinger, founder of Design Hotels, also plans to have famous DJs and musicians perform on the “natural amphitheater” on the beach, as well as provide local and sustainable foods, organic “food on the go”, and an on-site boutique that offers local and international designs.

The Papaya Playa Project will close on May 5, 2012.
